Pick of the Day: 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC

The best Enzo-era Ferrari GT

-

Ferrari as a marque needs no introduction. They are the most mythic brand in the world of sports cars due to their history on the race track and the scores of celebrity owners the cars have had. Ferraris also offer world class performance and some of the most amazing styling to ever grace a sports car.

Of these cars there is a single model that has been wildly popular over the last 7 or 8 years due not only to its performance and styling but also due to the fact that it is the easiest to drive V12 powered Ferrari GT car that they have ever built. That car is the 330 GTC.

The 330 GTC shared the short wheelbase as well as its independent rear suspension of the outgoing 275 models nut in a more refined GT car package than other Ferrari cars of the time. They we quieter, easier to drive, and more comfortable behind the wheel, much like the 2+2 models but in a two seat configuration. Journalists at the time were heard to say that the 330 GTC “was probably the first Ferrari in which you could actually enjoy listening to the radio”.

The 330 GTC was introduced in March of 1966 at the Geneva Motor Show. Featuring a two seat configuration with striking yet subdued styling by Pininfarina combined with a powerful 4 liter Ferrari V12 engine with a 5 speed gearbox with a gated shifter. I can say from personal experience that the 330 GTC is a wonderful car behind the wheel and completely delivers on the whole Ferrari V12 GT car deal.

The Pick of the Day is one of these amazing cars, a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC for sale on ClassicCars.com located in Christchurch, New Zealand. Before you let the location put you off, consider that you can ship this car to the U.S. for around $10,000.

The seller describes this 330 GTC as a very original 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC that is powered by a 4 liter V12 engine with a 5-speed transaxle gearbox and is one of 598 cars produced from 1966 to 1968.

The car is equipped with factory air conditioning and it has received a beautiful repaint back to the the car’s original color of Grigio Fumo/grey with a restored black leather interior. It is equipped with period correct Michelin tires with its original Campagnolo magnesium wheel rims.

The seller adds that the engine recently underwent an engine and 5-speed trans axle gearbox rebuild that included all seals, restoration of downdraught weber carburetors, new correct fuel hoses, new pumps, a restored fuel tank, a radiator rebuild, and all cooling hoses also replaced. In addition, the wiring was all completely overhauled or replaced and the dashboard was removed and restored at that time. The engine and mechanical work was mostly carried out by AutoRestorations of Christchurch, New Zealand.

This 330 GTC was imported into New Zealand from the USA in January 2020 and the seller can provide all paperwork needed for importation back. The car also includes all books, a complete original Ferrari factory toolkit, and service records.

The 330 GTC tends to be an expensive car, often selling for more than $600,000. The best part of this listing, other than the amazing car itself, is the price. This 1967 330 GTC has an asking price of only $466,000, and if I were again in the market for one of these cars I would contact the seller immediately to set up a pre-purchase inspection and then take it home.

No other car delivers the feeling of satisfaction or accomplishment like a Ferrari in the garage, so don’t miss this amazing car.

  1. I would guess that having this in your garage would be similar to having a single malt of many years vintage alongside your standard Johnny red label. Which do I opt for on a Tuesday evening of no import? As I read those words I can see they reflect much more on me than as critique of the marque. C’est la vie. Beautiful, and in my mind, underappreciated.
